Reducing Insider Threats with Automation.
IT risk is measured by the probability of occurrence and consequence by exploiting a particular vulnerability. GateKeeper Proximity is crucial to those dealing with IT risk management. Many insider threats originate in opportunism. A study by Accenture found that 21 percent of healthcare employees write down their user names and passwords on paper near their workstation. 18% said they were willing to sell information for money.
A key method in preventing more opportunities for insider threats is to reduce risk windows. One of the greatest risks is unlocked and unattended computers. This is a violation in many compliance mandates such as HIPAA, CJIS, DFARS, and most corporate security policies. To prevent unlocked computers, GateKeeper automatically locks computers when users leave - preventing local access to passwords and other gateways available through an unlocked computer.
